The UNDP implemented Green Energy Development II (GED II) project is a comprehensive initiative aiming to create a favorable environment for investing in Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy Sources (RES) measures in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Building on the achievements of the first phase of the project (GED I), GED II seeks to contribute to BiH’s EU accession, promote the reinvestment of savings in local priorities and infrastructure, and to facilitate the employment of domestic workforce.
Gender analysis refers to methods used to understand relationships between men and women, their access to resources, their activities, and the constraints they face relative to each other. A comprehensive gender analysis includes the examination of the different roles, relationships, rights, needs, and opportunities of women and men, boys and girls in a given project context. It is a tool that helps to promote gender relevant entry points, policies and identify opportunities for promoting gender equality during project implementation.
Based on analysis of regional and sector-relevant information about gender equality, the objective is to ensure that gender related issues are taken into consideration during the project cycle and all beneficiaries have equal access to resources, services, capacity development and have equal participation in decision making processes. The analyses can also serve as tool to monitor progress from a gender perspective during implementation.
The research will include the gender relevance assessment of the project, mainstreaming in the project cycle, regional/country level and sectoral level analyses and lessons learnt from the first phase of the GED project.
Bosnia and Hercegovina signed the Treaty establishing the Energy Community calling for the adoption and implementation of Acquis Communautaire on energy, environment, competition and renewables. It also signed to fulfil the obligations under the latest EED directive putting emphasize on EE measures in building sector suggesting that, since the building stock represents the biggest potential for energy savings, the rate of building renovation needs to be increased, taking in to the account the cost -effective approaches to renovations relevant to the building type and climatic zone.
The 2010 Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive (which repealed the Energy Service Directive), are the main drive when it comes to reducing the energy consumption of buildings. The EPBD Directive, among other preconditions, puts forward that country members must set minimum energy performance requirements for new buildings, for the major renovation of buildings and for the replacement or retrofit of building elements. This was expected for the fact that buildings are responsible for more than 40% of energy consumption in the EU whereas in Bosnia and Herzegovina this number exceeds 50. The EPBD directive suggests that the minimum requirements should be set with a view to achieving the cost-optimal balance between the investments involved and the energy costs savings throughout the lifecycle of the building, with a free right of a member state to set minimum requirements which are more energy efficient than cost-optimal energy efficiency levels. The Directive provides narrow limits to set minimum requirements on energy performance of buildings which are calculated within the energy performance of typical buildings achieving the lowest costs in the lifetime of the building to a maximum deviation of 15%. Even though EPBD does not provide direct constraints on primary energy consumption allowed for new buildings or for larger reconstruction of the existing building, it thereby provides a framework in which the set requirements can manoeuvre positively affecting the energy consumption in the building sector.
During the past three years UNDP has made a significant improvement in promotion of Energy Efficiency. The focus was the introduction of energy efficiency in public sector across BiH by implementation of replicable energy efficiency projects pilot buildings and introducing EMIS (Energy Management Information System) into more than 4.000 public buildings.
Part of the UNDP’s Green Economic Development program’s efforts is to enhance the energy efficiency and renewable energy sources recognized as the single most powerful and cost – effective way to achieve goals of increased security of energy supply and climate change mitigation.
Through the UNDP’s Green Economic Development program National Typology of Public Buildings was created. Forming of the Typology was necessary for the definition of the appropriate strategy for managing the public building stock in all its aspects. The next step is to create the Cost-optimum analysis for the public buildings based on the Typology, which, together with Typology, will be the basis for systematic rehabilitation of public buildings thorough adequate financing mechanism.
